Ladies thought to the next round of the Tasker Trophy

The total combined score from both the home and the away match was an outstanding win for Belton Park 11½ - 2½!

The weather was kind for the home match, and it was a great result, but the weather for the away match was awful, but despite the awful weather, the team managed a great win!

Seniors Match vs Newark (home) - May 18th

The Seniors team played their first home match of the season against Newark GC. The weather was very kind to us as the forecast showers stayed away. The course was in superb condition. Despite fielding a strong team, Newark only managed one halved match and Belton Park were the victors by a score of 7½ to ½.

After the match the teams enjoyed an excellent 2-course lunch in the Brownlow suite, and everyone was really pleased to be able to eat together inside the clubhouse at last!

Newark Seniors Captain Pat Roche thanked the greens staff for a superbly presented course.

Belton Park Seniors vs Sleaford (away) – May 6th

Belton Park Seniors played their second away match of the season against Sleaford Seniors on Thursday, May 6th. The weather started out fairly bright and sunny, but cold, and was fine until we were hit by two short, but heavy hail showers! 

The day started with bacon rolls and coffee served outside the clubhouse, socially distanced of course. The Sleaford course has recovered fairly well from the recent flooding, but like every course, the dry and cold weather has not helped the grass grow! Having said that, the greens were very good and reasonably quick as a result of being ironed. 

After the match, drinks were served on the patio in bright sunshine. The match result was a resounding victory for the Belton Park team 7-1, with 6 wins and 2 matches halved. Well done team!

There was a prize of a bottle of wine for nearest the pin in two on the 18th hole. Keith Bowers won the prize for the Belton Park team and Al Pearson chipped in for the home team to win the home team prize!
